Forest ecosystems, living forests

Habitats forestiers et forêts habitées

How do usages, management options and social practices interact with wildlife in the forest?

Comment usages, gestions et pratiques sociales interagissent avec la faune sauvage en forêt ?

*  *  *

Published on Thursday, February 28, 2019 by Céline Guilleux

Summary

During this workshop, we will deal with the forest, a part of our landscapes and a privileged place of interactions between nature and society, between man and wildlife. We will discuss on the past footprint of our activities, their current determinants and their challenges, as well as how forests and associated habitats might change. To achieve that task, we will favour pluridisciplinary approaches taking into account wildlife and forest ecology, their social representations and the tourist attendance associated with these natural and cultural heritages.
